    It’s Owl Good!

    TSOLHootFlipwm

    Hi everyone,

    Most of you who follow my blog, know that I LOVE owls! So of course I was super excited when I found out that The Stamps of Life would be releasing owl dies to coordinate with their Owls2love stamp set. These dies are being released today, so celebrate I am sharing 3 cards using this stamps/dies with you.

    For my first card I used the middle sized owl together with the Sizzix Triple Fancy Frame Flip-its Card Framelits. I turned the tree designer paper onto it’s side so the trees looked like branches rather than trees.

    TSOLHootFlip2wm

    Here is the ‘flip’ side of my card, I cut apart a sentiment from the set so I could have one word on each of the labels (don’t worry I can still use the sentiment in it’s intended way when I want to Smile)

    TSOLOwloweenwm

    For my second card today, I created another flip-its card this time using the new Sizzix Circle Flip-its Card #4 Framelits which was released this month. This time round I created a Halloween themed card. It was just the perfect opportunity to use that fun owl  paper on the right hand side panel.

    TSOLOwloween2wm

    And of course there is an “Owl”oween stamp included in the Owls2Love stamp set which I used on the ‘flip’ side of my card.

    TSOLOwlGoodwm

    For my  final card today I created a Stand-Up card using the Sizzix Regal Stand-Ups Card Framelits. I used the outline owl  from the Owls2Love stamp set to stamp onto my designer papers and then I stamped the accessory body and added the beak, eyes and feet after I had die cut the owl with the new die of course.

    TSOLOwlGood2wm

    Here is the side on view of my card, so you can see the stand up portion of the card a little better.

    And finally, here is my card closed ready to be placed into an envelope.

    To The Greatest Dad!

    FGMBBQCouplewm

    Hi everyone,

    My card today is for a challenge I am doing with a couple for friends of mine this year. Each month we get together and go to our favorite stamp/scrapbook store and come home with one or two new goodies Winking smile. This year we decided to also challenge ourselves each month using a product we all have.

    Our challenge this month was to create a card using Karen Burniston’s Katie Label Accordion Card dies set and Elizabeth Craft Designs Word Stand Up Helper dies.

    For my card I used an new Art Impressions stamp set I recently purchased called BBQ Couple … I decided to turn it into a birthday card.

    Karen Burniston October Designer Challenge Card 2

    KBDCTimewm

    Hi everyone,

    As promised yesterday, I am back with another card for this month's Karen Burniston Designer Challenge, this time round the theme Karen has given us is Make it Manly! - cards for the men and boys in our lives.

    For my card today I have made a Spiral Circle Pull Card using the Spiral Circle Pull Card Die set and the Clocks and Gears Die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

    For the clock face I die cut the clock from glossy card and then used alcohol inks to add color to my card.

    The gears on my card were die cut from Orange Iridescent; Light Blue Metallic and Yellow Metallic Shimmer Sheetz.

    KBDCTime2wm

    I created the spiral part of my card using clear acetate so that the gear appear to be floating.

    The sentiment at the top right hand corner of my card was stamped onto one of the labels from the Katie Label Accordion Card die set. I hand cut the fishtail for the sentiment at the bottom of my card and placed it on my card so that only the word “Time” shows when the card is closed.

    I have also used Black/Silver Glitter Dots on some of the gears.

    If you are looking to purchase Karen's Pop It Ups dies in Australia you can find them at Photo Continental.

    Don't forget to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog on Wednesday when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month.
